'Shared Streets' Coming to Your Neighborhood


 Hi Yupette -

Seen what those lovable New Urbanists are up to lately? Next phase of 'Complete Streets' will be 'Shared Streets'. I found a depiction of what 'Shared Streets' will look like in plans for Courthouse redevelopment, going to the Planning Commission and County Board this month. Just approved by the Millennials who now run the Transportation Commission. So what are 'Shard Streets'? Let everyone onto a street - motor vehicles, bicycles, skateboards, pedestrians, parents pushing strollers, seniors on mobility scooters, food trucks...everything. Traffic moves as fast as the slowest pedestrian. So here's the artist's depiction.

Artist needed to add 50 bikesters, 10 skateboarders, 10 parents pushing strollers, and 18 food trucks to the rendering.

Right, artist's depiction should include at least 3 passed out Millennials and several 'homeless' panhandlers.

Defer Courthouse, Pentagon City, other mega development until next year when there are two new C.B. members and a new C.M. --- hope it's not Shwartz.
